At ASF, we feel a great responsibility to help our community, - both internal and external -, in times of need. At the moment, we want to focus our efforts as a School on helping our closest neighbors with their priority needs. We hope that by offering a helping hand, we will help keep the neighborhood safe and strengthen our bond with the School’s surrounding area.
Therefore, we launched a campaign on Wednesday, May 13 to help the surrounding community with food pantries (despensas) and would like to encourage you to participate.
We have already received the first donations and we want to THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
The cost of each food packet is $750 pesos and it is good for a family of four for 15 days. The packets will include: fresh fruit and vegetables, groceries (beans, rice, lentils and others), cleaning supplies (chlorine and soap) and medical supplies (face masks and thermometer).
This includes delivery right to a family's front door. Since we are also stressing the importance of staying at home during the following weeks, we are delivering them with a group of couriers that will do so in the most sanitary way possible.
We have around 170 families in a vulnerable situation due to age, illness and / or economic condition will receive the packages which include cleaning supplies and basic medical care. from the Gamma Club and La Gaviota that will be our main priority to begin with. Since we are working alongside the ABC Hospital, Centro and UVM, we will also benefit families from the Brimex Clinic. They will know we are helping them because we will include a flyer with all our logos and the information of our campaign.
The Junior League of Mexico City will be our partner and receive the donations in their bank account, issuing deductible receipts and paying the suppliers.
